Polyglykol G 500

Humectant for Pigment Preparations

Edition Date :
November 02, 2017

Polyglykol G 500 is a very low VOC humectant for waterborne pigment preparations. 

Polyglykol G 500 provides lower preparation viscosities compared with conventional linear polyglycoles and has little impact on wet scrub resistance. Polyglykol G 500 retards the drying of pigment pastes and forms a soluble film of the pigment preparation. It prevents the formation of skin or lumps on the surface of the dispersion.

The dosage in pigment preparations varies from 5 – 15% in the preparation.
